Searching for the right camcorder

  • My wife and I need a camcorder that will have excellent audio recording capability.  I have read that some cameras have a zoom in audio feature. How well does it work and can I get a camera that has that feature with an external mic input? (Without breaking the bank.)
  • Hey there, KJerec.

    I could not find any information on a camcorder that we carry that has a zoom-in audio feature, but we do carry 14 models with a mic input that you can use to increase your sound quality. Some of the Canon ones are not too expensive and shouldn't break the bank for you. I would say that to ensure good sound quality, the external mic would be your best option but I haven't used a camcorder with the zoom-in audio feature.

    Hope this helps.
